Q550: How do I dispose of unwanted ammunition/firearms?
You must NOT dispose of it yourself.
You can dispose of ammunition or firearms by either:
- Surrendering it at your local police station.
- Handing it to a registered firearms dealer.
- Giving it to another person who is an authorised firearm certificate holder.
Please note that all calls to police involving firearms are treated as if it is a genuine firearm so be aware that if you do wave an imitation firearm around you could find yourself surrounded by firearms officers pointing real weapons at you.
